and the chances of gun control legislation finally passing, democratic leader nancy pelosi. madam leader, thank you very much for joining us. the pain is horrendous. you spoke on the house floor last night. what is your reaction? you're a mother. you're a grandmother. this is so, so overwhelmingly sad because of the age of the children involved. >> well, because of the age of the children, of course, and the number of them and their teacher and their counselor and their principal, all of the above, and that the other children would be exposed to this as well. it would carry them in our hearts, which are very heavy. it's just almost unfathomable to capture what their grief is to their families, but we have to make sure do everything in our power and use that term not as a figure of speech, but as an actual fact. everything in our power to try to prevent it from happening again. >> the president has said he will use everything in his power. words matter, though, and we have seen that this was not discussed during the election campaign. no commitments were made. no promises were made. it just wasn
's condition, so anything i'm about to say is about this disorder in general and not about madame secretary. you know, blood clots are common. they affect over 400,000 individuals in the united states annually. and there are certain situations that put us at higher risk. for example if we have an injury and we're put to bed for a couple weeks and we're 20 years of age then we maybe have a 20% likelihood of developing a blood clot. if we're 60, it may be higher, approaching 60%. so the situations put us at higher risk for blood clots. >> what about if you've had it before? the new york daily news is reporting that back in 1998 she had a blood clot behind her left knee. is a recurrence common? >> like many illnesses blood clots are really the summation of risk factors. what i mean by that is you may inherit something. you may be put into a situation and they come together and show itself. there are certain inherited things that give us blood clots at a usually low risk. then if we're put in a situation such as put to bed rest that risk can increase. if you've had a previous clot you are at hi
supreme court fight. here with me tonight are christine quinn and joy reed. madam speaker, judge scalia is an interesting character. tell me what was your reaction. he cashed in a number of ways, he was making absurd comparison. let's get back to the morality issue. what is the connection between your personal views of morality and your views of the constitution? >> you know, look. he wasn't teaching a law class there. he was making a point, i believe, about what he actually thinks. and the job of the supreme court when they're going to take up this very important matter isn't what they personally think about lgbt people. it is what the constitution sets out as a framework for protecting the rights of americans. that's the question here. and i believe the supreme court is going to rise to that occasion as they have before and look at those important issues. and really the justice should apologize for what he said there. >> what did he say? tell me what exactly he said wrong. besides the way he talked. just the comparison of murder with people's orientation? >> it's offensive. sexual ori
the rates or, madam president, we are going over the cliff. >> i'm reminded of the famous george bush adage, whatever it was, fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, it was actually shame on me. >> that's what republicans are saying exactly this, the white house has opportunities in the future in which it can raise taxes on the wealthiest and it should take those opportunities in order to get us through this crunch period. do the minimum that is possible now to stop us falling over the fiscal cliff, then when it comes to actual tax reform later next year, that will be the white house opportunity. democrats are saying we don't buy that. we're going to do it now, a majority. country supports us doing it and we're going to do it right now. it's a little bit the inverse of the republican argument that if we give you tax hikes now, how do we know we're getting the spending cuts later. democrats are saying the same thing, but in reverse. >> they feel they have the wind in their sails, not only because of the election, but people talk about debt ceiling being leverage. it would not be good for
. >> is there an objection? >> madam, preserving the right to object. matters of this controversy, what we're talking about is a perpetual debt ceiling grant. >> i guess we have a filibuster of his own bill so i object. >> is there objection to the original request? >> yes, i object. >> objection is heard. i got whiplash. >> one of the more interesting moments, perry. what is the average american sitting become and watching c-span going to think of that? >> i think they are confused about what is going on. mitch mcconnell was trying to show that there's a divide among the democrats about how they raise the debt ceiling. there are 51 democrats for getting rid of congressional authority on the debt ceiling as well. they have been pretty unified. every democrat in the senate and the house is for about $1 tr$1 trillion in tax increase while the president has some divided on tax increases, some aren't, it's been challenging because democrats in the senate and the house are with him right now. >> does it tell us anything about where this whole debt ceiling is or whether it could be another nasty fight? >> we're
